There has been some drama going around in the bookish world, if you haven't heard about it, you must be living under a rock! Check out author Justine Larbalestier's post about the cover of her to be released novel Liar. I was actually contacted by PW to quote what I thought of the cover, but they were only interested in hearing from people that had read the book. Which I haven't. I really don't have anything to add to the conversation. Yes, I'm appalled. As a reader, I don't think of myself as being that superficial. I loved the cover, it intrigued me, but to know that the publisher didn't want to represent the true race of the character, because of a predicted loss of book sales, truly saddens me.

I'd also like to mention the Color Me Brown Book Challenge for the month of August hosted by Color Online.
